9780692572375: A Cornucopia of Dunderheads: A Parody of the Novel A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES by John Kennedy Toole, with a Foreword by Franz-Heinrich Katecki

WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED TO IGNATIUS J. REILLY? In this parody of A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES by John Kennedy Toole, John Kennedy Toole Jr. plunges Ignatius J. Reilly into a New York City winter wonderland, where our Falstaffian hero inadvertently becomes vice president of the Charlie Chan Chinese Fortune Cookie Company, and where he finds a recently unearthed slip of paper that contains an occult secret for overthrowing the governments of the world (in a most unusual way, of course). Ignatius's parodic adventures would not be complete without his nemesis-friend, Myrna Minkoff. Add to the mix her parents, Mr. Minkoff and Mrs. Minkoff, two inept government agents (is there a redundancy here?), Ignatius's mother, his mother's fiancÚ, a virago or two, John Kennedy Toole, Ed Sullivan, and Myrna's concupiscent grandmother, Grandmother Horowitz, and you have the ingredients for a parody unlike any other ever written. With a foreword by Franz-Heinrich Katecki.

About the Author:

Claiming to be the illegitimate son of John Kennedy Toole and a Micmac, John Kennedy Toole Jr. resides in a cave somewhere in the backwoods of Maine, living off the grid while writing parodies on an Olivetti typewriter that he purchased at a Goodwill store. When he is not writing, hunting, or fishing, he explores the Aleutians, the Antipodes, and Micronesia in his baidarka. In his free time he sells public infrastructure to unsuspecting rubes, his key offerings being the Brooklyn Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge.
